These homeowners desired a functional space that allowed for entertaining and large family gatherings. To create a larger, more open space for the kitchen, a wall was removed between the dining room and the kitchen. A new dining room was created in the front of the house, giving new life to an underutilized formal living room space.

This kitchen design features double islands - each with its own purpose: one island is for cooking, baking and prep, and the other for entertaining and everyday informal family meals. Also included in the new design is a desk area, a dry bar, and a custom pantry.

The designer's clients wanted an updated and timeless style, which was achieved by combining a custom Benjamin Moore paint color, Wind's Breath, with classic, Mission-stained Red Oak cabinetry from Dura Supreme.
